Description: An eight-hour version of 101 – Principles of Lean Manufacturing, the course combines classroom instruction with intensive hands-on experience in the simulated shop-floor venue of the Time Wise, Inc. Clock Factory. The class exposes the frailty of Traditional Manufacturing Concepts in a high volume, low variety mass production facility. Students experience the process of assembling a variety of working clocks in an environment that begins with traditional thinking (Push Scheduling) and is gradually transformed (3 rounds) into a world-class Lean facility utilizing Lean Concepts (Cell and Pull). Students experience directly the immediate and dramatic impact of the transformation process on themselves, their workplace roles, and the enterprise of which they are part.
